ASME 2010 Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference: Volume 3
A large-scale pipeline test rig at Deltares, Delft, The Netherlands has been used for filling and emptying experiments. Tests have been conducted in a horizontal 250 mm diameter PVC pipe of 258 m length with control valves at the downstream and upstream ends. This paper investigates the accidental simultaneous closure of two automatic control valves during initial testing of the test rig. The simultaneous closure of both valves has induced upsurge and downsurge at the same time. Large waterdoi:10.1115/pvp2010-26131 fatcat:gmksmdgah5agpnhcqw7e54rtga
